At the local LUG yesterday, someone was showing
around his latest toy - a GuruPlug Server :
They also have the Standard unit :
And one with a display (HDMI) port on it :
(no price yet)
At first I was thinking one of these would run a
backend as long as your requirements weren't too
demanding - but when I think a bit more, by the
time you've added a hard disk and power supply,
then it quickly becomes rather less attractive as
the cable count goes up.
But would the display version have enough power
to run as a frontend ? It's a 1.2G ARM based
processor, with a TDA9989 HDMI interface (spec
sheet says it supports 1080p) and no GPU. I'm
guessing this wouldn't be a high performance
Pity, I doubt you'd get a smaller and neater frontend.
